Hi first let me tell you something about the work involved. 1, getting the case off can be a nightmare as its held by screws and clips getting the clips wrong and forcing them can break the circuit board 2 say you get the case off you then going to either need to unplug the wire from the circuit board its just a push fit and then with the new cable you will either need to by the exact cable from tv repair shop so as you have the same clip or you can use the old clip and splice a new wire onto it( this is not recomended as it only takes someone to pull the mains wire and then if it comes undone inside the telly it will do damage and possibly give someone a shock)
you can get the wire from most tv repair shops and they will sell you one if you do this it wont require you to do any splicing together as it will come with the push fit connector on the end and this plugs into the circuit board so its not soldered in place it just a push fit.
3 even though the telly is unplugged certain parts will still be live and can give you a very nasty shock and this will cause you to short the telly out.
if you can get the cable then thats the easy part but getting the case off is a nightmare as if you do get all the screws out and the clips you then have to unplug several wire connectors to allow you to remove the back enough to work on the telly.
its up to you but it is risky and you could damage the telly and with a telly like this i would say your best option is your local repair shop but take the telly to them as this will save you money for paying for transport, it wont cost much to pay the shop to do it as long as the telly wasnt plugged in when the cable was chewed through, if it was then this could be more serious and could cost a hell of a lot more to get put right it may even be not financially worth doing if it did short out when the cable was chewed through.
i would make sure first that the cable was chewed through when the tv was turned off at the socket if the plug was switched on then the chances are the tv will cost more to fix than its worth and then your best option would be to sell it on the auction site as faulty.
if it was not plugged in when it was chewed through then all it needs is the power lead replacing and this dont involve any solder as its only a push fit but the shop will know how to take the case off to do this without damaging the telly.
if i was you i would leave it to the shop as its not worth damaging it for the price of a cable.
double check first that it was unplugged at the socket when the cable was chewed through else i would cut the losses and get a new tv, a shorted out set can be a nightmare to fix, their not like the old sets where it would short out then you could just change a fuse in the back of the telly these have graphics cards and other parts which would have shorted out if it was plugged in.
let me know if you need further assistance ok
plz rate this solution as i have a whole page of unrated posts, thanks
Try website like Remotes.com to buy the original remote.Any universal remotes is find,but getting ur tv codes to work on ur tv universal remote are 70/30%,u want to tries with the univeral remote,it up to u.
Without the remote many controlling options will be missed . Better to have a new remote to have full enjoyment from your TV options . If you can't find the exact remote , then you can look for universal remote , that works with any device including your TV . By universal remote control you can control any device or appliance at your household .
Those units usually have a main board that all the functions are centralized on. If the LED comes on then your power supply is operating (at least no shorts). But the main board will most likely be the problem.
acquire universal remote. acquire exact replacement from mfg if avail.
no alternative if your remote is destroyed. based on your need to access menus with it.
then hope your dog develops a taste for something else.
to that, my dogs chew bully sticks. it satisfies their need to chew. which is a really big drive. and they cost a bit, but last a long time. and its cheaper than replacing remotes and furniture, shoes and other things. and your dog will be extremely happy. costc has started carrying them. most pet stores carry them. they are also known as pizzle. you really don't want to know more about them. they will keep your dog happy when otherwise bored.
This is a very easy fix. Your cable box is not grounded correctly. To fix this you need a AC Plug adapter. This will change your TV ac plug from a 3 wire to a 2 wire. This may sound funny, but trust me on this. I have fix a lot of TV in NY doing just this.
